The Bellinger Abingdon branch – at 111 Ock Street – is closing on 7th October 2016.
I got a letter this morning. It said … “Your vehicle and contact vehicles will be transferred to the Milton Gate site next door to Milton Park… If you can’t make it to Didcot we also have a large site in Grove.”
111 Ock Street is a long established Abingdon motor car sales centre. At one time it also sold petrol.
So what next for this site? Will it continue as Abingdon’s oldest continuous site for motor car dealers?
Gowrings acquired 111 Ock Street sometime between 1926 and 1930 as a depot for Ford motor cars. etc. The site then expanded to Mayott’s Road, acquiring all the properties between. In 1997 Bellingers took over the site and started selling Vauxhalls instead of Fords.
